Anchor building is the foundation of every day of rock climbing. In this clinic, you’ll learn the principles of anchor construction and understand what makes a solid anchor. You’ll also practice building anchors all day long, in different locations. This creates different challenges and helps hone your understanding. Throughout the day, you’ll be in small group, with a guide providing you with mentorship in new techniques and skills.

This day is valuable for anyone who wants to build secure climbing anchors with confidence, whether at a top-rope area, or a lead or sport climbing venue.

"Ben from Smith Rock Climbing is awesome. Was impressed at how great he was with our kids, creating an amazing first climbing experience for them."

"We did a family climbing trip to Smith Rock State Park with this outfit and had a fantastic time. Aaron was our guide and was incredibly patient, encouraging, and skilled with us and our three kids ages 12, 10, & 8. All the equipment was provided and we felt very safe. It was a very positive experience for us and we enjoyed a great day at the crags. Don't miss a chance to climb this spectacular park. Well worth it !"

"I have climbed twice with them at Smith Rock, and both times have been outstanding. Cliff is a great guide and a blast to spend a day with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to climb out there, or on Hood."
